Abstract : This thesis reviews various readiness assessment tools used by military units and the civilian First Responder community. Most civilian readiness assessment tools have fallen short of adequately predicting a response team's probability of mission success or failure. This thesis will explore the use of model-based vulnerability analysis techniques and FT++ software as potential tools that could be adopted by first response organizations to predict a unit's operational performance.
